College Avenue project gets stimulus funds
The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) has authorized the expenditure of federal stimulus dollars to fund milling and overlay work in the city of Holly Springs.
The Mississippi Transportation Commission approved the low bid of $222,972 submitted by Standard Construction Co. Inc. to mill and overlay College Avenue from West Boundary Street to Memphis Street. The contractor has been issued a Notice to Proceed on the project.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) will spur transportation-related improvement work throughout the state in coming months. On each project, MDOT will work closely with local officials to ensure that all ARRA deadlines and requirements are met.
Within the transportation industry, ARRA funding has been used to construct new roads and maintain existing infrastructure, enhance and modernize public transit services, expand airport capacity and improve safety at those facilities, expand ports, and make new investments in the development of high-speed rail systems, all with a goal of enhancing and protecting the environment.
